MRS. MARIA L. ERVAY TO BE BURIED FRIDAY

Ervay, Mayor of Dallas in 1870, who died Sunday night in a hospital in San Diego, Cal., will be held Friday morning at the Central Christian Church, Masten Street and Patterson Avenue.

Mrs. Ervay, who before her marriage to Col. Ervay in 1868 (could be 1863) was Miss Maria Louise Hickman, a native of Missouri, at one time had large property interests in Dallas. Several years ago she moved to California and since her residence there had gradually sold all her property in Dallas until a holding at Commerce & Market Streets, which she sold about two years ago was the last of her properties here. Ervay Street is named for Col. Ervay, who was an active worker in the early development of the city.
